Does that take into consideration all the people who only use Twitter via text message or third party applications, such as TweetDeck?

Most of the people I know who use Twitter don't actually go to Twitter.com to tweet.

Phil Bowyer

Adam that's a good point, and that's what I was going to say. I haven't been to Twitter.com in months, but I use Twitter all of the time. I use Tweetdeck for Twitter, Facebook and MySpace, so I rarely go to those sites.

Facebook is a bit of a different animal. Except for updating status, you HAVE TO go to Facebook.com. That's why their numbers might suggest a higher engagement.

Justin Boland

Good point from Adam...also, I'd be more interested to see Hitwise's take on who's providing the most referral traffic these days. I know from our own metrics that, as much as I despise the FB, it's providing about 30-40% of our referral traffic.


The full article at Hitwise says, "the above chart indicates visits to Twitter's website, and does not include application and mobile traffic." There are quite a few comments mentioning that this may under represent Twitter usage.
